Hi there friends!  Forgive me, I must have a smidgen of Christmas, okay?  I know, I know, it’s kinda of early but the thing is I have new stamps and new dies and can’t wait to show them!  Today I’m sharing a traditional Christmas card and it just feels right.  You know, that one card that feels traditional, it feels just like Christmas – well, this one does to me.  Just what I need to kick off my holiday agenda!

Christmas Card Making Ideas by Becca Feeken using Spellbinders Holly Tags Two, Spellbinders A2 Scalloped Borders One and Unity All is Calm All is Bright -

    It’s never too early to start thinking about Christmas cards.
    It takes a lot of thought to come up with the perfect card – which means a lot of time to plan out the final design.
    thanks for sharing
    The card is beautifulReplyCancel

    Beautiful as always, Becca! Your designs are so balanced in proportion. I struggle with that at times.
    The design paper you used is one of my favorites. Enough pattern without being too busy. Love this card!ReplyCancel

    It’s never too early for Xmas cards. I’ve been busy since July making mine. This one is stunning Becca! I’ve got a reindeer stamp that I’ve never used, so you’ve given me a great idea how to use it now. Thank you xReplyCancel

    My favourite cards to make and I make 3 or 4 a month all year round! This one uses traditional papers and colours but a bang up to date image. Best of both worlds! Hugs Christine xxReplyCancel

    Beautiful card, Becca. It does embody everything Christmas-y! That is a beautiful deer stamp, and you have showcased him perfectly with the red, green, and gold accents. Thanks for such a beautiful inspiration for Christmas!ReplyCancel

    Good morning! I so like the way you have used the Spellbinders Holly Tag. I don’t think I have seen this holly tag before now. I see how this would enhance my Christmas cards this year. Thank you for sharing!ReplyCancel

    These are my favorite Christmas color combinations. It’s never too early for starting on Christmas cards. I already have the message and thinking about the front of the card. I am almost done with my Thanksgiving cards which I have to finish before I start the Christmas ones. Your card is beautiful.ReplyCancel

  • Barbara TranquillaAugust 25, 2015 - 11:46 am

    Hi Becca, You do get mileage out of your Spellbinders curved borders. All my borders are stored in an Art Bin located on the highest shelf pretty much out of reach. I must get them down and start to think like Becca. Great red addition to the card. You do it every time–take something that’s just OK and turn it into something grand. Your bows do help, too. Many thanks. BarbaraReplyCancel

I am ‘over the moon’ to have won one of your cards, I am so lucky. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I can never Thank my friend enough for her text.
    Enjoy your day.

  • Joni StonekingAugust 25, 2015 - 4:15 pm

    Very festive, Becca. Love that stamp. Went looking for that exact saying a couple years ago and wasn’t thrilled with what I found. Now I start another shopping list….. Yeah, like I’m not just going to add to…

  • Carol H.August 25, 2015 - 5:17 pm

    Don’t be apologizing for Christmas cards! I finished mine LAST month!!! LOL! I decided a few years back that waiting until even November was just too stressful. I remembering telling my mother that the next year, if I didn’t do them sooner, I wasn’t going to make any–I’d just mail bought cards!! I’m so glad to be making them in the summer as I really enjoy it so much that way! That being said, I love your card, of course! :) I really like the patterned paper you used! It looks so pretty with the gold! Beautiful!ReplyCancel

  • Sandy ArtmanAugust 25, 2015 - 6:34 pm

    Hi, Becca,
    So beautiful! I just really can’t get enough of red, green, white/cream and gold during the holidays. They give me such a happy feeling. I love the red panel at the left that supports the bow.


    Love and blessings,

  • Wanda ThomasAugust 25, 2015 - 6:38 pm

    Can’t say that the stamp does much for me, but you certainly made a beautiful card of it!ReplyCancel
